Visiting Portugal either in the autumn (oct/nov) or
next spring. Spring I guess is a good time to
visit anywhere in Europe, but what about autumn?

What's the weather like in October/November?

Thanks! :)

I prefer the autumn actually. Im not a warm weather person. and i think europe in the fall is so nice. Portugal will be comfortable too im sure - not too cold. its on the water so some parts - The Algarve - may be breezy and cool....but for the most part temperate im sure.
bring a jacket/sweater. and best part - less tourists :)

Hello, Algarve in Portugal is a fine place to be almost all year. The weather sometins is hot enough to go to the beach in October, other times its a bit more cold, but not too cold. Its always a warm here in Algarve. If you need to know anything else about the algarve, dont hesitate messaging me.

Just thought that I would update you on the weather situation for the Algarve 2004. The summer has been excellent this year and October has been very good, although the temperature has dropped a bit it has still been very pleasant. November is off to a bad start with a bit of rain but when it clears it is quite hot. You never know here what is going to happen with the weather out of the peak summer months.

Generally Mid May until the end of September is excellent. October until May is pretty much hit and miss with the weather.

The benefits for visiting the Algarve between October until May are the cheaper prices for accommodation and for flights. If you want to check out some prices for accommodation, you could try the (snip)web site which has a large selection of holiday rental villas and apartments, some good links for flights and car hire.

Generaly in the low season, you will find more local events being organised. A big party for the Algarve is in March with the Carnival. A poor reflection of the Rio carnival, Loule has the best arrangements for the Algarve's carnival festivities. Silves holds a number of events and Lagos has quite a few small celebrations going on. A big day for all of Portugal is April 25th revolution day.
